On the 7th of May, 1777, the pub
lic executioner of Colmar was impris
oned.for having left the town without
the permission of the authorities; .he
was several times brought :Opfer ex

and here is_the amount he gave

in his horuas- , -his wife-and assistants
being out—occupied in some duty of
his office, such as repairing handcuffs
or putting a gibbet together, when
he heard a load knock at the door.
He opened it without hesitation—an
executioner reould_ scarcely - be timid

others. The executioner saw all this.
at a glance; he was astonished, but
"You are the public executioner?'
said one of the strangers. -
"Yes, Monsieur," was the reply. .
"Are You alone? We wish to see
you in private."
"I am tquite alone; will you - walk
in, gentlemen . '
He thought they were messengers
from some rattighboring tribunal, and
drew back to let them enter the
house. But he had scarcely finished
speaking when these men sprang up
on, gagged him, bound him hand and
foot, that he could not move a single
limb, and placed him in the

was certain were all vaulted, and at

where the bandage was taken from

with black, and a few torches cast a
dim, sepulchral light over the apart

distance from him, and though they
were unmasked, the light was so faint
that he could. not distinguish their

Immediately a ft er the executioner

concealed ly a long veil. She - was

of the boding circle, where she stood
erect, calm and motionless her hands

him ? 'After a few- moments reflec

to say with an unhesitating voice—

All around he heard swords drawn
from their scabbards, from which he
supposed that those magistrates were

with them as was with John Quincy's
ancestor, " sink or swim, survive or

have been led to this subject from
different reasons, but' most ly, from
readings publication entitled" Sketch;
es and Intildmits," by George Peck.
The atttlior says, "It -is worthy of
remark, that one of the most inter
eating, departments of the English
literature of the last century owes its
birtlfto 'the alum which the better
disposed liteiati of the age took at the
general declension' of manners and
moats, and their attempt to check it.
I refer to the Periodical Essay. 'The
British essayists are technically dis
tinguished in our literature—they
forma department which has become'
classical. A foreign . writer says that
they have been reprinted more mien
sively than any other books in our
language,' except the Scriptures.
" Some of the brightest names in
the catalogue of English writers owe
much- of their Mae 'to their works.
Among them may be mentioned
Steele, Addison, Berkley, and John ,
son: These - publications, which af
terwards became so - distinguished,
Were conducted as ephemeral ftheets.
They were issued twice or thrice a
weel, and contained brief articles,
which. discussed the follies and vices
of the times. Their character was ,
generally humorbus or sarcastic;
ommon* they contained a sober - re
buke of the irreligious of the day.
" The first in the list is the Tattler,
ojected by Steele;•bnt to wlikh Ad
dison was a frequent contributor. It
is' almost exclusively confined to the
superficial defects of society. It is
the best picture extant of the domes
tic, moral and literary condition of
the early part of that century.
"The Spectator, conducted conoint
ly by AddisOn and Steele, fol lowed
the 7i:tiler. It is still one of the most
popular works of our language, and
presents, perhaps, one of - the best
standards of correct English style
which possess. Next appeared
the Guardian, projected by Steele,
but aided Much by Addison, Pope,
and Berkley. A long list of miscel
laneous writers of the same class fol
lowed, who have not been placed - by
the public opinion in the rank of the
classical essayists. Dr. Johnson, in
his Rambler, restored the periodical
essays to - their first dignity. I have
already Mentioned; that these writers
aimed at first more at the correction
of the follies, than at the sins of the
times They grew serious, however,
as they grew important. It is cur
ions to observe their increasing se
verity, as they obtained authority by
time andvopularity. Steele, from a
long and various study of the world,
painted with mirinte accuracy its ih
surdities. Addison, with a style the
mostpure, and an humor mild and
elegant, attempted to correct the lit
erary taste of the times , and to shed
the radiance of genius on the dispis
ed virtues of Ckistianity.
"He rescued Milton from neglect.
He exemplified in-death the power of
his principles. Pope satirized in some
,admirable criticisms the literary fol
lies of the day." OBSERVZIL

There' is not a word of truth in the
above, although it is the verdict ren
dered every day by the unthinking
public. True, he ma, not be an out
breaking' blackguard, or a noisy,
.quarrelsome rowdy, as the majority
of Whiskey drinkers are ; but to say
that he hurts himself is an untenable
ble position. Go ask his heartbroken
wife if he only hurts himself! Hear
her heavy sigh as she bends' over an
unfinished garment, and with strain
ed eyes and trembling fingers,' • plies
the needle, as the only means by
which she can procure bread to keep
her children from starving, and then ,
ask her if he only hurts himself? See.
him eating the bread she earned with
her tired hands for his famishing
children,' and tell us if he only hurta :
himself? See him taking the furni
' ture,the bed,even the old family bible
to pawn for nue, and then sax if you
can, he only hurts himself! ,

TEE DISMAL SWAMP NEES.
Almost.every year there is a fire in
•the Pisinal Swamp. When one breaks
•-out it increases until it is put out by.
rain. As-there has been so long con:.'
tinned a drouth this year, the confla
gration has extended almoat beyond
precedent. It has burnt about 16
miles almost without interruption, in
a line from northwest to southwest.
It is sill progressing in its..-.wogkal
devastation, and it is fears hat it is'
-destined to do much more harm be
fore it is arrested by rains. Several
' fine farms have been burnt out, and
Awe there were formerly the.-rich
est fields there are seen new acres
upon acres • of ashes, some pita of
which are fifteen feet deep. Tire
drouth has been so severe that the
swamp is in many places dry down
to the sub-soil, which variesin depth
below the surface from four to fifteen
feet. All above it.is vegetable mat
ter, in a greater or less degree of de
composition, which has accumulated
and becomes itself the bed of innu
merabler swamp plants . , until the whole
is matti3dAegether by their roots per
meating the whole mass. When this
is perfectly dry, it catches like tin
der, and burns from the Efurface down
to the ground beneath, requiring a .
great deal of water to put it out. - If
a small shower falls, enough to wet
the surface .of the depth of only three
or four inches, the fire is not stop
ped; for it burns away underneath.,
W,he,lhis is the case, the soil-is un
derburnt often to a great distance,
and people walking on what th e y,

If they should still be hot, wo be to
the unlucky wight ; his growth is
stopped forever. Persons muicqtutint
ed with the features of thia country
express surprise at the existence of
Lake Drummond so far above tide
water, at the - summit level of the
swamp. This is easily accounted for,
when we, reflect how that whole
swamp was formed . It is raised up
many-feet above the original soil by
the accumulations of vegetable mat
ter for ages *tipciti ages, until some
parts of the Dismal Swamp are much
higher than any of the surrounding
country. Hund.rW.s of years ago the
middle of this great - swamp .caught
fire, and the burnt district is now
Lake Druminond. This is - shown by
the fact that all through the lake are
fiiund charred stumps, and its whole

The following grupic passage is from

by a 31r. Campbell and his party, in
the North of Norway, from a cliff one

sun swung low along the horizon,
